Aloha! Cluster Pays is a fun and exciting online slot game by software provider Netent, and it has to be among this developer’s most popular titles. The game features a very colorful setting, with a volcano in the backdrop and a Hawaiian tiki statue standing beside the reels – speaking of which, you will get to see the tiki perform a little bit of a hula dance to mark winning combos. There’s also a chilled soundtrack to set the island vibe that this slot is clearly going for.
Looking past the vibrant visuals, players will be sure to notice the rather unusual setup of this game. It’s very much in Netent’s style to offer a different take on gameplay, and Aloha! Cluster Pays matches that description. The layout features 6 reels and 5 rows, whereas there aren’t really any paylines. In order to form winning combinations, you need to land clusters of at least 9 identical symbols, and there are a total of 7 of those on these reels. Furthermore, the three most lucrative icons are larger and count as two symbols each. In addition, there are a few special features to enjoy which we will cover below, and players can look forward to an attractive jackpot of 10,000 coins.
Where to Play
With an overall uncommon setup comes similarly uncommon special features; even the Wild symbol in this offering isn’t quite as it is in most other slot games. Before we move on to that though, let’s first point out the Sticky Win Re-spins feature. This is a random bonus that can be triggered at any point during gameplay by a winning spin. As a result, the symbols forming the winning combination will remain in place as a re-spin occurs, and if this results in an increase of that combination then a subsequent re-spin will be triggered.
The Substitution Symbol essentially fulfills the duties of a Wild, only isn’t quite one. It’s shaped like a wooden crate with a question mark, and whenever it lands on the reels it will assume the appearance of the adjacent symbol that can create the highest paying combo in a cluster. The Substitution Symbol can land in any position on the reels, substituting for any symbol except for the Freespins symbol.
Just like all other icons in this game, the Freespins symbol can land in any position on the reels. It doesn’t offer any payouts of its own, but, as the name suggests, it can trigger the Freespins bonus round. For this to occur, however, you will need to land at least 3 of these icons during the same spin. The number of symbols will determine the number of freespins you receive, thus, 3 symbols will give you 9 freespins, whereas 4 and 5 will award you 10 and 11 freespins, respectively. Lastly, the maximum of 6 symbols will grant you a total of 12 freespins. What’s more, this feature is also subject to a retrigger, where you can gain an extra 1 to 4 freespins.
Although not completely conventional, gameplay in Aloha! Cluster Pays is still rather simple and straightforward. Plus, there are cool, high-quality visuals and animations to make things all the more fun and entertaining. However, the main attraction is of course the winning potential that this slot has to offer. Though it’s a medium variance title, you can still pocket some pretty big prizes.
